Comic for October 21, 2015

This strip is the first to feature Sputnik, Captain Thew’s nephew. He’s a prodigy and a troublemaker rolled into one, and for sure is going to make life on-board the Tempest yet more interesting.

In the background of the first panel is my hat-tip to some real-life heroes, the firefighters of Detroit. A few weeks ago my sister and I went downtown to the Detroit firehouse as they are commissioning her to use one of her photos of Detroit as a design on one of their new t-shirts. I was honored to meet some of the people that work to make the city safe. I asked if I could use some of their logos in my comic and they gave me the go-ahead. Thank you, Detroit firefighters, for all that you do!
